For the third time the Danish Bridge Federation invites all bridge lovers to take part in a unique bridge event. 20 international top pairs, handpicked for their bridge skills as well as sparkling personalities, will be invited to compete in a three-day imp pair tournament at the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel.

However this year they are not alone.
